REVIEW 



■FIG. 1 




FIB. 



EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT. PEOPLE STAND IN LINE AT 
THE SHOWS TO TRY IT. "IT" IS A MARVELOUS MEM PERIPHERAL 
AND SOFTWARE PACKAGE THAT PACKS A TON OF FUN. AND IS 
USED WITH EQUAL DELIGHT EY YOUNG AND OLD. THE PHYSICAL 
COMPONENT (PICTURED ABOVE! IS ft COMPACT. STYLISH 'BOARD" 
WHICH MAY 3E HELD IN HAND OP PLACED ON A FLAT SURFACE. 
IT IS PRESSURE SENSITIVE, RESPONDING EITHER TO A 
FINGERTIP OR ft SPECIAL PLASTIC STYLUS (INCLUDED), 
SIMILAR IN APPLICATION TO A JOYSTICK OR TRACKBALL, THE 
KOALA PAD IS A MORE NATURAL FEELING INTERFACE BETWEEN 
HUMAN AND MACHINE. IN GRAPHICS APPLICATIONS, THE POINT 
OF PRESSURE ON THE PAD IS TRANSLATED TD A CORRESPONDING 
LOCATION ON THE SCREEN, AND WITH THE RIGHT SOFTWARE YOU 
ARE ABLE TO "DRAW BY MOVING THE STYLUS ON THE PAD. 

THE SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH THE KOALA PAD ALLOWS MUCH 
MORE THAN JUST DRAWING, HOWEVER. LINES, RAYS. 
RECTANGLES, BOXES, CIRCLES, i DISKS ARE ALL CREATED BY 
POINTING WITH YOUR STYLUS, AND CLICKING YOUR BUTTONS. 
SHAPES ARE MADE IN TWO STAGES. THE FIRST STAGE SETS THE 
SIZE AND SHAPE OF YOUR LINE OR AREA- NOW MOVE YOUR LINE 
OR SHAPE AROUND- THE SECOND STAGE (PRESS YOUR BUTTON 
A6AIN) 'SLUES" YOUR OBJECT TO THE SCREEN. IF YOU DON'T 
LIKE WHAT YOU DID, THE "OOPS' OPTION WILL UNDO YOUR LAST 
MISTAKE. THIS IS A UNIQUE AND WONDERFUL FEATURE NOT 
FOUND IN ANY OTHER GRAPHICS PACKAGE. IT INSTILLS EVEN 
YOUNG CHILDREN WITH A SENSE OF TOTAL CONFIDENCE- KNOWING 
THEY CAN FIX ANY MISTAKE WITH A SINGLE BUTTON. 1 

FIG. 2 (OUR COVER PHOTO) SHOWS SOME OF THE DETAIL AND 
TEXTURE THAT CAN BE OBTAINED. THE MORE EXOTIC FEATURES 
INCLUDE: 4-WAY MIRRORING, FAST FILLING OF CLOSED SHAPES, 
COLOR EXCHANGE (REPLACE ALL THE YELLOW ON YOUR PAINTING 
WITH BLUE BY PRESSING A SINGLE BUTTON), COPY, AND ZOOM. 
FIG. 3 SHOWS THE BOXED PORTION OF FIS. 2 IN THE ZOOM 
MODE (WHERE YOU MAY PAINT EACH INDIVIDUAL DOT). 
SPEAKING OF DOTS, YOU HAVE 160 ACROSS BY 230 DOWN. 
ALSO, YOU HAVE OVER 125 COLORS TO CHOOSE FROM (THE 
PALETTE AT THE BOTTOM OF FIG. 1 SHOWS 32 OF THEM), It 8 
BRUSHES TO PAINT WITH. SCREENS MAY BE SAVED TO AND 
RECALLED FROM DISK (BUT 30 FAR, THERE IS NO WAY TO SEND 
THEM TD YOUR PRINTER). 

THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING PRODUCT IN EVERY WAY, AND IS 
EASILY ONE OF THE TOP TEN PRODUCTS FROM 19B3.

INTERFACE- A FOUR POSITION JOYSTICK. HE HAVE SEEN MANY OF 
THE ALREADY RELEASED VERSIONS OF Q*BERT FOR OTHER MACHINES, 
AND THE 64 VERSION IS ABSOLUTELY THE CLOSEST TO THE 
ORIGINAL, IF YOU ARE A Q*BERT FAN, YOU CAN SAVE YOUR 
3UARTERS AND OHN Q*BERT INSTEAD OF JUST RENTING HIM (OR IS 
IT A HER?),

STRANGE-LOOKING HERO MUST SAVE HUKANBIDS AND DESTROY 
INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT ROBOT- ANTAGONISTS. THIS CONVERSION 
DOES NOT QUITE (ALMOST, BUT NOT QUITE) HAVE THE SPEED OR

THE AMAZING THING ABDUT THIS GAME IS THAT IT WAS WRITTEN BY 
11TH-6RADER PARRY GRIPP ENTIRELY IN MACHINE LANGUAGE. THE 
GAME HAS SOME HUMOROUS ELEMENTS. LIKE THE STUBBY SPACE SHIP 
AND THE CARRIERS FULL OF ALIENS LOOKING LIKE 'COSMIC 
CANOES". BUT SERIOUSLY, FOLKS, YOU HAVE A LOT OF SHOOTIN' 
AND BOMBIN' TO DO, SO WIPE THE' GRIN OFF AND CRANK UP THE 
THRUSTERS! AFTER YOU 6ET PAST THE CANOES, YOU GET TO A 
SECOND SCREEN: THE ICE CAVES. THIS IS A SCROLLING TUNNEL 
SITUATION, REQUIRING A STEADY HAND ON THE JOYSTICK. THO 
NOT HEADED FOR THE HALL OF FAME, THIS GAME IS A GOOD FIRST 
EFFORT, AND WE EXPECT TO SEE PARRY'S NAME CROPPING UP 
AGAIN.

GAME GRID. KITH YOUR TRUSTY JOYSTICK YOU ROAM THE GRID, 
LEAVING TIMED "LIGHT-BOMBS' FOR THE OTHERS. WHEN YOU ARE 
LOW ON FUEL YOU MUST MOTOR INTO THE NEXT SCREEN AND TANK UP 
HITH LIGHT-CYCLE FUEL (NOT AN EASY TASK, IT TURNS OUT) AND 
THEN GET BACK INTO THE FRACAS. THE GRAPHICS ARE NOT TOO 
SHABBY, AND THE GAME IS FAST 4 CHALLENGING, BUT THE SOUND

"NEURO-LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING" (NLP) DEVELOPED BY ROBERT

CAUSE THE MAXIMUM BENEFIT TO USERS. NLP HAS TO DO WITH

MICRON EVE 



REVIEW 




THE MICRON EYE DIGITAL CAMERA IS A UNIQUE PERIPHERAL WHICH ALLOWS YOUR 
CM TO 'SEE'. THE LATEST VERSION OF THE MICRON EYE HAS SEVERAL 
IMPROVEMENTS IN THE SOFTWARE AREA WHICH ARE A GREAT IMPROVEMENT OVER 
EARLIER RELEASES. SO FAR. THIS IS THE ONLY CAMERA HE KNOW OF THAT IS 
READY TO USE WITH THE M AND AVAILABLE TODAY. 

THE UNIT SHOWN HERE IS THE "BULLET" MODEL. WHICH IS THE LEAST 
EXPENSIVE. AND IS ALSO THE MOST COMPACT; ANOTHER MODEL IS AVAILABLE 
WHICH CAN' OPERATE AT MUCH GREATER DISTANCES FROM THE COMPUTER THAN THE 
BULLET. THE BULLET PACKAGE CONSISTS OF THE "DPTIC RAM" SOLID STATE 
IMAGING DEVICE (ACTUALLY AN EXPOSED LIGHT-SENSITIVE MEMORY CHIP), A 
C-MOUNT LENS WITH SHUTTER AND FOCUS, A UNIVERSAL TRIPDD. A 
CARTRIDGE-TYPE INTERFACE. SYSTEM DISK, I MANUAL. PLUG IT IN, TURN IT 
ON, AND YOU HAVE PICTURES ON YOUR SCREEN (PROVIDED YOU REMOVE THE 
LENS-CAP!) 



ONCE YOU ARE RUNNING. THERE ARE SEVERAL MODES TO CHOOSE FROM INCLUDING 
GREY SHADED OR BLACK, NORMAL OR ENHANCED SIZES, AND SINGLE OR DOUBLE 
PICTURE MODE. THE PHOTOS TO THE LEFT SHOW SEVERAL OF THESE MODES, 
WHICH CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THE STATUS LINE AT THE TOP OF SCREEN. WE 
SHOT THE PICTURES OF OUR STAFF ALIEN & THE EDITOR (HOPE YOU CAN TELL 
WHICH IS WHICH!) ON A 1781 COLOR MONITOR. WITH THE RIGHT LIGHTING, 
VERY GOOD RESULTS CAN BE ACHEIVED. WHILE OPERATING, YOU CAN SAVE 
IMAGES TO OR LOAD FROM DISK. YOU CAN ALSO DUMP THE IMAGES TO A 
6RAPHICS PRINTER. 

THE SYSTEM DOESN'T COME WITH ANY REALLY PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS 
SOFTWARE, BUT THE DOCUMENTATION AND SUPPORT IS GOOD, AND EXPERIMENTERS, 



HDBBYISTS, AND PROGRAMMERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO DEVELOP 
SOFTWARE TO HAKE USE OF THIS TECHNOLOGY. 



SOME INTERESTING 



AN INTERESTING NOTE IS THAT THE PICTURE FILES CREATED BY MICRON EYE, 
SORCERER'S APPRENTICE, AND FLEXIDRAH, CAN ALL BE LOADED AND MANIPULATED 
BY THE OTHERS, THUS IT IS POSSIBLE TO SHOOT A LANDSCAPE IN GREY SCALE, 



DO SOME LIGHT-PEN "AIR-BRUSHING" 
SORCERER'S APPRENTICE! 



TO IT, AND FINALLY COLOR IT IN WITH 



MICRON EYE IS REASONABLY-PRICED, AND THE COMPANY IS VERY HELPFUL WITH 
TECHNICAL QUESTIONS AND CUSTOM APPLICATIONS.

'I SPEAK BASIC TO MY COMMODORE 64" 
BY AUBREY B. JONES 



HAYDEN BOOK COMPANY 
RQCHELLE PARK, NEK JERSEY 



THE COMMODORE 64 HAS FINALLY BEEN AROUND LONG EN0U6H 
FOR THE PUBLISHING WORLD TO CATCH UP WITH IT, THOSE OF YOU 
WHO HERE FRUSTRATED BY THE USER'S MANUAL AND COWED BY THE 
PROGRAMMER'S GUIDE, TAKE HEART! WHEN IT COMES TO 64 
PROGRAMMING. THERE ARE TWO BOOKS FOR BEGINNERS AVAILABLE. 

"I SPEAK BASIC TO MY COMMODORE 64" IS THE LATEST 
ADDITION TO AUBREY JONES' LINE OF "I SPEAK BASIC BOOKS. 
DESIGNED FOR CLASSROOM USE, IT IS ALSD EMINENTLY SUITED TO 
THE BEGINNER WHO IS LEARNING ALONE. IT HAS PLENTY OF 
EXAMPLES, MOVES SLOWLY, AND REVIEWS OFTEN. 

■I SPEAK BASIC" COVERS PROGRAMMING CONCEPTS THAT APPLY 
TO ALL COMPUTERS, !N SPECIFICS THAT APPLY TO COMMODORE. 
WHILE IT INCLUDES THE USE OF GRAPHIC SYMBOLS, IT DOES NOT 
COVER THE 64' S SPECIAL SPRITE GRAPHICS, PROGRAMMABLE 
CHARACTERS, OR SOUND CAPABILITIES. ITS TEH LAYOUT AND 
LARGE PRINT MAKE IT A GOOD VOLUME FOR A CHILD TO USE, WITH 
A PARENT'S HELP. 

THIS BOOK IS MEANT FOR THE ABSOLUTE NOVICE, AND IT 
DOES AN ADMIRABLE JOB OF TEACHING THE FOREIGN LAN6UA6E OF 
CDMMODORE BASIC. 

"THE ELEMENTARY COMMODORE 64" IS ALSO THE LATEST IN A 
LINE OF SIMILARLY-TITLED BOOKS. IT IS AN EXCELLENT WORK 
THAT SUFFERS FROM WHAT MIGHT BE TERMED A MAJOR PROBLEM - 
THE "MIGHT" DEPENDING ON WHICH VERSION OF THE 64 YOU OWN. 
THE SECOND REVISION (THE MAJORITY OF SALES) HAS AN INTERNAL 
SETUP THAT REQUIRES THE COLOR MEMORY TO BE POKED SEPARATELY 
FROM THE SCREEN MEMORY. IF YOU OWN THAT MACHINE. THE SCREEN- 
POKING CHAPTER JUST WON'T WORK FOR YOU BECAUSE THE AUTHOR 
WORKED WITH A PRE-RELEASE MODEL THAT DIDN'T NEED TWO POKES 
FOR ONE THING TO APPEAR. 

THAT PROBLEM ASIDE, "ELEMENTARY" IS A WONDERFUL BOOK. 
BESIDES PROGRAMMING BASICS, IT COVERS CASSETTE, DRIVE, AND 
PRINTER USE. THE CHAPTERS ON SPRITE GRAPHICS AND SOUND ARE 
CLEAR, BUT BRIEF - OBVIOUSLY. SUCH TOPICS CAN'T BE COVERED 
THOROUGHLY IN WHAT PURPORTS TO BE AN ELEMENTARY BOOK. 

THIS VOLUME IS ALSO AIMED AT THE COMPLETE NOVICE, BUT 
ASSUMES THE READER IS AT LEAST A YOUNG ADULT, AND MOVES AT 
A PRETTY BRISK PACE, 

IF YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT PROGRAMMING, "I SPEAK BASIC" 
IS YOUR BEST BET; YOU CAN GRADUATE TO "ELEMENTARY" LATER. 
IF YOU HAVE A GRASP OF THE BASICS - LOOPS, ARRAYS, STRINGS, 
IF-THENS - AND KANT TO LEARN SOME OF THE 64'S OTHER TRICKS, 

60 STRAIGHT TO "THE ELEMENTARY COMMODORE 64".

WITH MANY OF RICHVALE'S OTHER APPLICATIONS SOFTWARE, 
INCLUDING THEIR WORD-PROCESSOR- "SCRIPT 64*: THIS IS COLOR 
SB'S BEST APPLICATION, WHERE THE 48 COLUMN MODE CAN BE USED 
FOR EYE-EASE, AND THEN THE 8B-C0LUMN MODE CAN BE SWITCHED

FLEXIDRAH 



REV I EM 



THE FLEXIDRAW SYSTEM FROM INKWELL IS A LIGHT-PEN BASED TOTAL DRAWING ENVIRONMENT 
WHICH HAS APPLICATIONS FOR ARTISTS. DESIGNERS, HDBBIESTS, PROGRAMMERS, AND OTHERS 
NEEDING A TOP QUALITY HI-RES GRAPHICS INPUT AND EDITING SYSTEM. 

THE FLEIIMH SYSTEM CONSISTS OF: A DT-170 LIGHT PEN ENCLOSED IN ANODIZED 
ALUMINUM KITH A NOSE OR TIP-SNITCH, A MASTER SOFTWARE DISK, FUNCTION KEY OVERLAY. 
AND MANUAL. 

THE PEN IS INSTRUMENTATION QUALITY. COMFORTABLE TO HANDLE, AND A BREEZE TO 
INSTALL (SIMPLY PLUG INTO THE JOYSTICK PORT], THE MASTER DISK HAS THE MAIN 
DRAWING ROUTINES FOR USE WITH THE LIGHT PEN. AS WELL AS SAMPLE DRAWING LIBRARY, 
SYMBOL TEMPLATES, A SPRITE EDITOR/ANIMATOR, A MUSIC SYNTHESIZER PROGRAM, AND A 



PROGRAMMING MODE WHICH LETS THE USER ACCESS 
BASIC. 



THE HI-RES DRAWING ROUTINES FROM 



FLEXIDRAW IS EASY TO USE DUE LARGELY TO THE SOPHISTICATED ON-SCREEN MENU SYSTEM 
(WHICH IS SIMILAR TO THOSE OF LARGE COMPUTER DRAFTING SYSTEMS), FUNCTIONS AND 
MODES ARE SELECTED BY TOUCHING THE PEN TO THE SCREEN MENU (SEE FIGS. l,2,i 3). 
RESPONSE IS INSTANTANEOUS, AND HIDDEN MENU ITEMS APPEAR AS THEY BECOME NEEDED, 
USING THE MENU AND PEN RAPIDLY BECOMES AN EXTENSION OF THOUGHT, AND THIS IS ONE 
OF THE MAIN ATTRACTIONS OF THIS KIND OF DRAWING SYSTEM. 

THE DRAWING SOFTWARE IS IN 320 X 200 BLACK fc WHITE HI-RES BIT-MAP MODE. AS A 
RESULT, THE MAXIMUM DETAIL IS ACCESSED. DRAWING FREE-HAND IS VERY SMOOTH AS A 
RESULT OF AN 'AVERAGING 1 FUNCTION WHICH FILTERS OUT NOISE AND JITTER. SOME 
FUNCTIONS SUPPORTED INCLUDE: LINES, RUBBER-BAND, BLOCK MOVE (3 MODESI, ZOOM, AUTG 
CIRCLES k BOXES, ETC, THE MOST POWERFUL FEATURE IS THE ABILITY TO USE A SET OF 
SYMBOLS (YOU CAN DESIGN YOUR OWN, OR USE THE ONES SUPPLIED) WHICH RESIDE ON A 
SECOND "PA6E", AND CAN BE MOVED TO A WORK SCREEN AND BE POSITIONED AND ADDED TO A 
DRAWING, (THE' CIRCUIT IN FIG. I IS MADE THIS WAY WITH COMPONENTS FROM FIG. 21. 
DRAWINGS MAY BE DUMPED TO A WIDE RANGE OF GRAPHIC PRINTERS. 



THE PROGRAMMING MODE LETS YOU WRITE ROUTINES THAT USE THE MACHINE LANGUAGE 
OF FLEXIDRAW FROM BASIC, 



POWER 



THE SPRITE EDITOR/ANIMATOR AND SYNTHESIZER ARE WELL-DONE EXTRA PROGRAMS THAT 
REALLY FILL OUT THE GENERAL APPEAL OF THIS PRODUCT (THERE CAN BE NO EASIER NAY TO 
EDIT SPRITES THAN WITH A LIGHT PEN! WE CREATED THE SPRITE IN FIG. 3 IN SECONDS.) 
SPRITES ARE AUTOMATICALLY CONVERTED TO DATA STATEMENTS (FIG. 4) AND CAN BE SAVED 
AS FILES. 



FLEXIDRAW IS AN EXCELLENT PRODUCT, AND HELPS THE ESTABLISHMENT OF 
SERIOUS AND USEFUL TOOL. - EDITOR

REUIEI4 



-SHflRQN "ZftRDETTO AKERJ 



HAVIHE USED ABACUS' 'SYNTHY-64", AND LOVED IT, I 
EXPECTED A LOT FROM ULTRABASIC 64. WHEN I SAW THAT ROY 
WAINWRI6HT HAD AUTHORED THIS PROGRAM (HE ALSO DID SYNTHY) 
MY EXPECTATIONS ROSE EVEN FURTHER. I WASN'T DISAPPOINTED! 

ULTRABASIC PUTS 60 SOUND AND GRAPHICS COMMANDS AT YOUR 
OISPDSAL. IT HAS A TURTLE GRAPHICS SECTION, SPECIAL SPRITE- 
SPECIFIC COMMANDS, INPUT FUNCTIONS FOR JOYSTICK, PADDLE, 
AND LIGHTPENS, AND OTHER FUN ODDS AND ENDS TO LET YOU WRITE 
AN ENTIRE PROGRAM IN ULTRABASIC. 



COMPARE THE NORMAL 
RES MODE KITH: 



METHOD Of PUTTING YOUR 64 INTO HI- 



HIRES A,B 
WHERE A AND B ARE THE SCREEN AND BORDER COLORS. AND, ASIDE 
FROM THE CONVENIENCE OF A BRIEF COMMAND INSTEAD OF A WHOLE 
POKEING PROGRAM, IN ULTRABASIC THE SWITCH TO HIRES ONLY 
TAKES AN INSTANT. (IF YOU HAVEN'T YET HAD THE PLEASURE OF 
SWITCHING TO HIRES IN COMMODORE BASIC, BELIEVE ME, ITS A 
SLOW PROCESS.) 

IN HIRES MODE, AS YOU MIGHT GUESS, YOU CAN ADDRESS 
INDIVIDUAL PIXELS WITH THE GRAPHICS COMMANDS. THERE IS AN 
ALTERNATE "NULTI" (COLOR) MODE IN WHICH YOU ADDRESS BLOCKS 
OF FOUR PIXELS AT A TIME. 

AS FOR THE COMMANDS THEMSELVES, YOU CAN DRAW A 
"CIRCLE" OR A "BOX" OR USE "BLOCK" FOR AN AUTOMATICALLY 
FILLED-IN BOX. "DOT" PLOTS A SINGLE PIXEL, WHILE "DRAW" 
LETS YOU PLOT A LINE. THE FORMAT FOR ALL THESE COMMANDS IS 
SIMILAR: 

DRAM X1,Y1,X2,Y2,C 

THE FIRST SET OF X-Y COORDINATES DEFINE THE STARTIN6 
POINT, THE NEXT SET THE END POINT, AND THE LAST NUMBER SETS 
THE COLOR. WHILE THESE COMMANDS ARE SHEER JOY AFTER 
COMMODORE BASIC, HAVING TO DEFINE THE COLOR WITH EVERY 
COMMAND DOES GET TEDIOUS. MOST GRAPHICS LANGUAGES ALLOW YOU 
TO SET THE COLOR SEPARATELY, AND IT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 
ANOTHER COLOR COMMAND IS ENCOUNTERED. MY FIRST REACTION HAS 
"OH NELL, BEGGARS CAN'T BE CHOOSERS'; BESIDES, THE PROBLEM 
IS ONLY A MINOR ANNOYANCE. 



THERE IS ALSO A "FILL" COMMAND THAT PAINTS IN AN AREA 
THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY ENCLOSED. THE "CHAR" COMMAND ALLOWS 
YOU TO PRINT TEXT ON THE HIRES SCREEN; WHEN IN MULTI MODE, 
THIS HAS THE INTERESTING EFFECT OF ENLARGED LETTERS. 

TURTLE IS A GRAPHIC LANGUAGE IN WHICH YOU GUIDE AN 
IMAGINARY TURTLE AROUND ON THE SCREEN; IT LEAVES A TRAIL, 
WHICH IS HOW YOU GET YOUR DRAWING. ULTRABASIC HAS CHANGED 
THE USUAL "PEN UP" AND "PEN DOWN" COMMANDS TO "TUP" AND 
"TDOWN". THERE ARE SEVEN OTHER COMMANDS THAT POSITION AND 
DIRECT THE TURTLE. THERE IS ACTUALLY A TURTLE QN THE SCREEN 
- A NICELY DESI6NED SPRITE THAT RUNS AROUND UNDER YOUR 
DIRECTION. THERE IS A COMMAND "BYE" THAT MAKES THE TURTLE 
DISAPPEAR, IN WHICH CASE YOUR PROGRAM RUNS SIGNIFICANTLY 
FASTER. YOU'LL WANT TO WORK IN THE BYE MODE WHEN YOU'RE 
DOING INTRICATE DESIGNS. 

THE SPRITE GRAPHICS COMMANDS ARE NOT THE SIMPLEST THAT 
I'VE SEEN DESIGNED FOR THE 64, BUT, AGAIN, COMPARED TO 
COMMODORE BASIC... 

FIRST, SPRITES ARE DESIGNED IN ONE OF THREE WAYS: 
"BIT", "HEX", OR "SDATA". EACH REFERS TO THE BINARY DESIGN 
OF THE SPRITE, BUT "BIT" ACTUALLY WORKS WITH THE PATTERN OF 
ONES AND ZEROS WHILE "HEX" AND "SDATA" USE HEXADECIMAL AND 
DECIMAL NUMBERS. WHILE THE BIT METHOD TAKES LONGER TO TYPE 
IN, IT HAS THE ADVANTAGE OF ALLOWING YOU TO SEE THE ACTUAL 
SPRITE PATTERN AS YOU ARE DESIGNING IT. SPRITE MOVEMENT IS 
EASY WITH 'PLACE' AND FUN WITH "ROTATE" (TO TURN IT NINETY 
DEGREES), BUT 6ETTING IT ON THE SCREEN IS A CHORE: 

SPRITE N,S,M,P,X,Y,C1,C2,C3 

ARGUMENTS FOR THE SPRITE COMMAND REFER TO THE SPRITE 
PRIORITY, SPRITE NUMBER, MODE (HIRES OR MULTICOLOR), 
BACKGROUND PRIORITY, VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL EXPANSION, AND 
COLORS. IT'S A LOT OF DATA TO CONSIDER, BUT WORTH THE 
EFFORT. THERE ARE SPRITE COLLISION DETECTION COMMANDS AND, 
BY THE WAY, SIXTEEN SPRITES ARE AVAILABLE. 

YOU'LL LOVE BEIN6 FINALLY ABLE TO EET AT YOUR 64' S 
SOUND CAPABILITES. THE "SOUND" COMMAND LETS YOU SPECIFY THE 
GENERATOR, PITCH, AND DURATION OF THE SOUND. THE THREE 
GENERATORS ARE PRE-SET TO DIFFERENT WAVEFORMS, BUT YOU CAN 






FEB FT' ftijiv 





RE-SET THEN WITH THE "GEN" COMMAND. YOU HILL BE POSITIVELY 
AMAZED NHEN YOU CAN PLAY A TUNE WITH ONLY A FEN SHORT 
PR06RAM LINES AND NO POKES. SOUND EFFECTS ARE EASY TO 
EXPERIMENT WITH AND YOU'LL FINALLY 6ET A FEEL FOR JUST WHAT 
A CHANGE IN THE WAVEFORM DOES FOR A SOUND. 

THERE IS ANOTHER TYPE OF SOUND COMMAND, CALLED "TUNE". 
THIS METHOD HAS THE ADVANTAGE OF BEINB ABLE TO SET A TUNE 
50INB THAT KILL PLAY WHILE THE REST OF YOUR PROGRAM 
CONTINUES. IT HAS THE DISADVANTAGE OF NEEDING ITS 

CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF DATA ENTERED IN HEXADECIMAL CODE. 

ULTRABASIC IS, OF COURSE, WRITTEN IN MACHINE LANGUAGE. 
ONCE IT IS LOADED INTO MEMORY, YOU CAN SAVE AND LOAD YOUR 
OWN PROGRAMS WITHOUT AFFECTING ITS STORAGE. THIS MEANS, OF 
COURSE, THAT ANY PROGRAM YOU WRITE IN ULTRABASIC CAN'T BE 
RUN UNTIL THE ULTRABASIC PROGRAM IS LOADED FIRST. 
PERSONALLY, I FIND THE NECESSITY FOR DOUBLE LOADS ANNOYING, 
AND WOULD MUCH RATHER SEE A SYSTEM WHERE THE MACHINE CODE 
IS SAVED ALONG WITH MY OWN PROGRAM. A PIPE DREAM, OF 
COURSE, BECAUSE THAT WOULD MAKE ULTRABASIC COPYABLE, AND NO 
ONE TRUSTS HOME PROGRAMMERS. (NOR SHOULD THEY, I SUPPOSE.) 

ALTHOUGH YOU CAN WRITE TEXT ON THE HIRES AND MULTI 
COLOR SCREENS, YOU CAN ALSO SWITCH TO A REGULAR TEXT MODE. 
THIS CAN BE DONE WITHIN A PROGRAM, OR JUST BY USING THE F5 
KEY TO SWITCH FROM ONE TO THE OTHER. 

THE DOCUMENTATION IS THOROUGH, AND REASONABLY CLEAR. 
IT IS THE KIND OF MANUAL THAT GETS CLEARER ON EACH READING, 
AND HAKES THE MOST SENSE AFTER YOU'VE HAD SOME EXPERIENCE 
WITH THE PROGRAM. 

ULTRABASIC PUTS INTO YOUR 64 WHAT COMMODORE LEFT OUT: 
A 600D GRAPHICS/SOUND LANGUAGE. WHILE SOME OF IT FEATURES 
ARE NOT AS SIMPLE TO USE AS THE COMMANDS IN OTHER GRAPHICS 
LANGUAGES, GETTING ALL OF THIS IN ONE PACKAGE IS A BARGAIN.

'THE HOME ACCOUNTAN T' 



IS BUILT AROUND A BUD6ET STRUCTURE 
DIVTDEnSTO "5 BASIC CATEGORIES: ASSETS, CREDIT CARDS. 
LIABLILITIES, INCOME, fc EXPENSES. ALL TRANSACTIONS AND BUDGET 
ACCOUNTS ARE ASSIGNED TO ONE OF THE ABOVE CATEGORIES. THIS 
FACILITATES THE PROPER APPLICATION OF CREDITS AND DEBITS 
BETWEEN DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACCOUNTS. THE START-UP IS LENGTHY, 
AS THE COMPLETE SYSTEM MUST BE STEPPED THRU AND SET-UP 3N THE 
PROPER SEQUENCE- THE SOFTWARE DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO SKIP ANY 
STEPS OR EVEN TRY TO EXPERIMENT WITH REPORTS OR GRAPHS UNTIL 
THE GROUNDWORK IS DONE. THIS IS A VERY GOOD IDEA It INSURES 
SYSTEM INTEGRITY. 

TRANSACTIONS ARE ENTERED THRU 3 SIMILAR BUT SEPARATE SCREENS: 
CHECKBOOK. CREDIT CARD, & CASH. FIRST, THE PROPER CATEGORY FOR 
THE TRANSACTION IS INDICATED, THEN THE BLANKS FOR DATA ARE 
FILLED IN SEQUENTIALLY. EDITING IS POSSIBLE (ONCE ALL FIELDS 
HAVE BEEN RESPONDED TO) BY TYPING THE FIELD NUMBER AND THEN 
RE-TYPING THE NEW INFORMATION, CHECKBOOK RECONCILIATION IS 
ACCOMPLISHED WITH THE SAME SCREEN-LAYOUT J, YOU ARE ASKED TO 
CANCEL OR PASS EACH CHECK OR DEPOSIT IN TURN. 

TRANSACTIONS WHICH ARE MADE EVERY MONTH (MORTGAGE, LOANS, ETC.) 
MAY BE PAID AUTOMATICALLY 8Y SETTING THEM UP IN A' SPECIAL FILE- 
EVERY TIME A NEW MONTH IS STARTED, ALL AUTOMATIC TRANSACTIONS 
WILL TAKE PLACE WITHOUT FURTHER USER-INTERVENTION. (YOU MAY 
NOT WISH TO PAY MID-MONTH BILLS THIS WAY SINCE THEY WILL BE 
FIGURED IN AT THE BE6INNING OF THE MONTH.) 

ONCE YOU HAVE THE SYSTEM SET UP AND A MONTH OR TWO OF CHECKS 
AND PAYMENTS PROCESSED, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO BEGIN SETTING A 
PICTURE OF YOUR FISCAL CONDITION VIA THE REPORT AND GRAPHING 
SECTIONS; THIS IS THE PAY-OFF FOR ALL YOUR HOURS OF 
CONSCIENCES KEYBOARD TAPPING. 



=== COMMENTS 



THERE'S GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS. ON THE PLUS SIDE, WE LIKE THE 
SEARCH FEATURE VERY MUCH: LETS SAY YOU GET TO • THE CATEGORY 
FIELD OF A TRANSACTION SCREEN AND YOU WANT TO ENTER THE 
CATEGORY- 'INTEREST, CAR LOAN'... YOU KNOW YOU SET THIS ITEM UP 
IN THE BUDGET, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW IF YOU CALLED IT 'INT.- 
AUTO', OR 'INTEREST, CAR'. OR WHAT- INSTEAD OF LOOKING IT UP 
FROM YOUR BUDGET PRINTOUT, YOU CAN JUST TYPE "INT" fc THE FIELD 
WILL AUTOMATICALLY SHOW THE FIRST ITEM FROM YOUR BUDGET THAT 
HATHCES THESE LETTERS- IF IT SAYS 'INTEREST, APPLE FUND' YOU 
JUST HIT THE SPACE BAR TO GET THE NEXT MATCH, AND THEN HIT 
RETURN WHEN YOU FIND THE RIGHT ONE. THIS IS A GREAT FEATURE 
FOR ANY PROGRAM OF THIS TYPE AND A REAL TINE-SAVER. 

UNFORTUNATELY, THE TIME SAVED WITH THE FIELD SEARCH DOES NOT 
BEGIN TO MAKE UP FOR THE TIME LOST PROCESSING TRANSACTIONS AND 
RECONCILING CHECKBOOKS. EACH TRANSACTION OR RECONCILED CHECK 
REQUIRES AN AVERAGE OF 1 1/2 MINUTES TO BE UPDATED TO THE DISK, 
AND MUST BE DONE PER ITEM (NOT AS A BATCH). THIS MEANS THAT IF 
YOU SIT DOWN TO BALANCE YOUR CHECKBOOK AND HAVE 50 CHECKS TO 
RECONCILE FOR THE MONTH (NOT AN UNCOMMON AMOUNT) YOU WILL SPEND 
ABOUT AN HOUR AND FIFTEEN MINUTES WAITING (THIS DOES NOT 
INCLUDE YOUR ACTIVE TIME OF TYPING AND THINKING) DURING WHICH 
YOU WILL NOT GET MUCH ELSE DONE BECAUSE EVERY MINUTE AND A HALF 
YOU WILL NEED TO ENTER THE NEXT TRANSACTION. THIS IS NOT OUR 
IDEA OF COMPUTER HELP, IT IS MORE LIKE COMPUTER TORTURE! THERE 
ARE ALSO PROBLEMS WITH THE AUTOMATIC FIELD-ENTRY ROUTINES 
DURING SPLIT AND SAME-DATE TRANSACTIONS, BUT THESE PALE NEXT TO 
THE SPEED PROBLEM. 



IN THE 'COMPLETE PERSONAL ACCOUNTANT' (CPA FOR SHORT), ALL 
FINANCIAL FUNCTIONS ARE BASED ON A CHART OF NUMBERED ACCOUNTS 
(DIFFERENT RANGES OF ACCOUNT NUMBERS DETERMINE WHETHER THE 
ACCOUNT IS AN ASSET, LIABILITY, EQUITY, INCOME, OR EXPENSE). 
YOU CAN SPEND SOME TIME (SEVERAL HOURS) SETTING UP YOUR OWN, OR 



YOU CAN USE THE ONE PROVIDED ON THE DISK 
TO YOUR NEEDS). 



(AS-IS, OR CUSTOMIZED 



ONCE ACCOUNTS ARE SET UP, ALL TRANSACTIONS (CHECKS, DEPOSITS, 
CASH, BANK CARDS, CREDIT CARDS, PHONE-PAYMENTS, RECONCILIATION, 
ETC.) ARE MADE VIA THE CHECKBOOK MAINTENANCE SCREEN. IN 
ROUTINE USE, DATA FROM YOUR CHECKBOOK IS PERIODICALLY 
TRANSFERED TO THE COMPUTER VIA THE CHECKBOOK SCREEN, ASSIGNING 
EACH TRANSACTION TO ITS APPROPRIATE ACCOUNT. YOU MAY UPDATE 
THIS ELECTRONIC CHECKBOOK AS OFTEN AS YOU LIKE, THO MANY OF US 
WILL CHOOSE TO DO IT ALL EACH TIME A BANK STATEMENT IS 
RECEIVED. TAX DEDUCTIBLES, CASH, i CREDIT TRANSACTIONS CAN BE 
FLAG6ED AND ARE HANDLED IN THIS SINGLE ENVIRONMENT. EDITING 
TRANSACTIONS SIMPLY INVOLVES SCROLLING FORWARD OR BACK THRU 
YOUR CHECKBOOK AND TYPIN6 OVER FIELDS NEE0IN6 CORRECTION WHEN 
LOCATED. 

TRANSACTIONS THAT OCCUR REGULARLY CAN BE HANDLED CONVENIENTLY 
WITH THE AUTOMATIC CHECK ENTRY FEATURE. MASTER CHECKS FOR 
THESE TRANSACTIONS ARE STORED IN A SEPARATE FILE WHERE THEY CAN 
BE BROWSED FOR AND INSERTED INTO CHECK-MAINTENANCE AND THEN 
EDITED TO REFLECT THE CURRENT DATE. THIS IS A CONVENIENT NAY 
TO AVOID FORGETTING A REGULAR BILL. AND CONTRIBUTES TO THE 
ACCURACY OF THESE IMPORTANT TRANSACTIONS. 
ONCE YOU HAVE YOUR STATEMENT AND HAVE BROUGHT YOUR TRANSACTIONS 
UP TO DATE, YOU ARE READY TO RECONCILE YOUR CHECKBOOK (USING 
THE SAME FAMILIAR SCREEN)- TRANSACTIONS WILL APPEAR IN 
SEQUENCE, AND YOU MAY CANCEL OR SKIP EACH ONE IN TURN. 

NEXT YOU WILL NEED TO BUILD YOUR BUDGET FILES; THIS IS FAIRLY 
STRAI6HTF0RWARD AND PROVIDES THE BASIS FOR MOST OF THE ANALYSIS 
TO BE DONE BY THE REST OF THE PACKA6E. 

UPON COMPLETION OF THESE NECESSARY CHORES, YOU HAY GENERATE ANY 
OF THE AVAILABLE REPORTS OR GRAPHS AND ANALYZE YOUR 
SITUATION/PREDICAMENT. IT IS ONLY AT THIS POINT THAT THE 
USEFULNESS OF ELECTRONIC FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT FINALLY COMES 
INTO VIEW. 

„.,,-- COMMENTS ========= 

WE LIKE THE PICTORIAL FORMAT OF THE TRANSACTION SCREEN. 
TRANSACTIONS ARE RELATIVELY FAST (ABOUT b SECONDS TO UPDATE TO 
DISK) AND ARE DONE AS YOU GO SO AS NOT TO RISK LOSING WORK. 
ALL OTHER FUNCTIONS (FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, BUDGET ANALYSIS, 
ETC. ) REQUIRE LOADING MULTIPLE FILES PRIOR TO A SESSION, 4 THEN 
SAVING THE UPDATED FILES MANUALLY AFTER THE SESSION. 

HAVING TO LOAD AND SAVE DATA FILES MANUALLY IS BOTHERSOHE, 
UNNECESSARY, AND (IN THE EVENT OF FORGETTING TO SAVE) CAPABLE 
OF DESTROYING AN EVENING'S WORK. THIS FEATURE IS OUR ONLY REAL 
COMPLAINT WITH 'COMPLETE PERSONAL ACCOUNTANT', AND WE HOPE ITS 
CREATORS WILL REMEDY THIS IN FUTURE UPDATES. 

ONE OTHER MINOR IRRITATION IS A LACK OF CONSISTENCY IN THE WAY 
THE USER MUST ENTER DATES. IN SOME PLACES THE DATES ARE 
ENTERED 6 DIGITS ALL AT ONCE (011583) WITH THE PROGRAM 
INSERTING SLASHES AFTER 'RETURN' IS HIT- IN OTHER PLACES PAIRS 
OF DIGITS MUST BE FOLLOWED BY 'RETURN' BEFORE THE NEXT PAIR 
WILL BE ACCEPTED: ISN'T LIFE COMPLICATED ENOUGH ALREADY?

tf THE HONE ACCOUNTANT It 



REPORTS 



It COMPLETE PERSONAL ACCOUNTANT It 



'HOrtE ACCOUNTANT' GENERATES NUMEROUS TYPES OF REPORTS (SEE 
SPECIFICATIONS): THESE ARE LIKELY THE MOST USEFUL OUTPUT FROM 
ANY GOOD ACCOUNTING PROGRAM. HE LIKE THE PROVISIONS HADE FOR 
INTERFACING THE PROGRAM TO A VARIETY OF PRINTERS. HE ALSO LIKE 
THE 12-MONTH, 132-CQLUNN OUTPUT WHICH IS NECESSARY TO GET THE 
WHOLE YEAR'S PICTURE ACROSS ONE PAGE. WHAT COMMODORE 
1525-OWNERS KILL NOT LIKE IS THAT THE 132 COLUMNS IS NOT AN 
OPTION, IT IS MANDATORY, AND ON THEIR 80-COLUHN MACHINES THEY 
HILL GET CONSIDERABLE' WRAP-AROUND WHICH WILL MAKE THEIR 
HARDCOPY LESS THAN PRETTY, 



'CPA' PRINTS THE WHOLE RANGE OF FINANCIAL REPORTS, WITH AN 
ESPECIALLY GOOD DETAILED BUDGET ANALYSIS. ALSO PRINTABLE ARE 
THE APPOINTMENT AND PAYMENT CALENDARS AS HELL AS MAILING LABELS 
FROM THE BUILT-IN MAILING-LIST PROGRAM. NO SPECIAL PROVISIONS 
ARE MADE FDR ACCOMODATING NON-COMMODORE PRINTERS, THO PROPERLY 
INTERFACED ASCII PRINTERS WILL WORK. AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT, ONLY 
BO-CDLUHN OUTPUT IS SUPPORTED: FDR THE ANNUAL SPREAD YOU WILL 
NEED SOME SCOTCH TAPE. 



GRAPHS & OTHER FEATURES 



'HOME ACCOUNTANT' PROVIDES FOR THREE KINDS OF GRAPHS: DA BAR 
GRAPH FOR SHOWING BUDGET VS. ACTUAL AMOUNTS. 2) A LINE GRAPH 
FOR CHARTING UP TD 3 ACCOUNTS AT ONE TIME. 3) A TREND GRAPH 
WHICH SHOWS THE ACTIVITY Of ONE ACCOUNT ALONG WITH A STRAIGHT 
■TREND" LINE. THESE GRAPHS COVER A 12-MDNTH PERIOD, ARE 
SELF-SCALING, AND HAVE AN OPTIONAL GRID WHICH CAN BE DRAWN OVER 
THE GRAPH. IN THE PROCESS OF CONVERTING THIS FROM THE APPLE 
VERSION, THE COLOR EOT LOST, AND ALL GRAPHICS ARE BLACK & WHITE 
(THIS CAN MAKE THE TRIPLE LINE-GRAPHS CONFUSING- THE COLOR IS 
NOW SCHEDULED FOR A FUTURE UPDATE.! 

HARD COPY IS ONLY AVAILABLE VIA. 3RD-PARTY SOFTWARE. 



CPA IS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING BAR GRAPHS FDR MOST OF ITS 
FUNCTIONS. DATA FROM YOUR VARIOUS FILES IS USED TO DRAW THE 
GRAPHS ON THE SCREEN (OR TO A PRINTER- SEE BELOW). THE GRAPHS 
ARE AUTOMATICALLY SCALED, AND SPREAD OVER SEVERAL SCREENS IF 
MORE DATA HAS BEEN CALLED THAN CAN BE DISPLAYED AT ONCE. THE 
MOST USEFUL 6RAPH IS THE BUDGET VS. ACTUAL GRAPH ISEE PHOTOS). 
UNFORTUNATELY CPA IS ONLY DESIGNED TO SHOW ONE MONTH AT A TIME: 
WE FEEL THAT A TWELVE-MONTH SPREAD WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE 
HELPFUL. 

IF YOU WANT A HARD COPY, YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES: WITH A COMMODORE 
GRAPHICS PRINTER, YOU SIMPLY PUSH THE APPROPRIATE MENU KEY AND 
YOU GET YOUR PRINTOUT- OTHER GRAPHICS PRINTERS HILL REQUIRE AN 
EXTRA SCREEN-DUMP ROUTINE (NOT INCLUDED). 

THREE ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS ARE INCLUDED ON THIS DISK: 2 
ON-SCREEN CALENDARS ASSIST IN KEEPING TRACK OF APPOINTMENTS AND 
PAYMENT DATES, AND A I200-NAME MAILING LIST PROGRAM ADDS EXTRA 
VALUE (IF YOU NEED A MAILING-LIST PROGRAM). 

ONE OTHER BONUS DESERVES MENTION: THE FLIP SIDE OF THIS DISK 
HAS A SELF-RUNNING INSTRUCTIONAL DEMO ON IT THAT SHOWS OFF THE 
FEATURES OF THIS PACKAGE. 



SUMMARY 



IT IS CLEAR THAT THE CREATORS OF 'THE HOME ACCOUNTANT' ARE 
SKILLED AND CAPABLE DESIGNERS WHO HAVE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT INTO 
A HOME ACCOUNTING CONCEPT, & INDEED, THIS PACKAGE HAS BEEN 
HIGHLY PRAISED IN ITS APPLE FORMAT. IT IS EQUALLY CLEAR THAT 
IN THEIR EAGERNESS TO 6ET THE M VERSION TO MARKET, CONTINENTAL 
SOFTHARE HAS DONE A HATCHET-JOB ON THEIR OWN PRODUCT (THE 
VERSION WE TESTED HAD SEVERAL OTHER SERIOUS PROBLEMS THAT ARE 
NOT DETAILED HERE, AS HE HAVE BEEN ASSURED THAT THEY HAVE SINCE 
BEEN CORRECTED). 

WHILE WE HAVE NO DOUBT THAT CONTINENTAL WILL EVENTUALLY BRING 
THIS PRODUCT UP TO SNUFF, IN ITS PRESENT FORM WE CANNOT 
RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE TRY TD USE 'THE HOME ACCOUNTANT' FOR THE 
COMMODORE 64. FURTHERMORE. WE FEEL THAT CONTINENTAL SHOULD 
WITHDRAW THE CURRENT VERSION FROM THE MARKET AND OFFER REFUNDS 
OR CREDIT TO PERSONS WHO HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED 'THE HOME 
ACCOUNTANT'- AT THE VERY LEAST THEY SHOULD DROP THE (20 CHARGE 
REQUIRED FOR UPDATED VERSIONS. 



INSPITE OF A COUPLE OF ROUGH SPOTS AND THE REGRETTABLE 
NECESSITY TO HANDLE SEVERAL DATA FILES MANUALLY, THE 'COMPLETE 
PERSONAL ACCOUNTANT' IS DEFINITELY A WORTHWHILE AND QUALITY 
PRODUCT PROVIDING A COMPREHENSIVE SYSTEM FOR HOME MONEY 
MANAGEMENT. IF YOUR FINANCES ARE FAIRLY SIMPLE, IT MAY BE 
OVERKILL: IF. HOWEVER, YOU TEND TO GET LOST IN YOUR STACK OF 
BILLS, RECEIPTS, 4 STATEMENTS, THIS PACKAGE HIL BE A GOOD 
INVESTMENT. 

TWO NEW PROGRAMS FROM PROGRAMMER'S INSTITUTE (A SPREADSHEET & 
AN INCOME TAX PACKAGE) ARE SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE THAT ARE 
INTENDED TO SHARE DATA WITH CPA AND MAKE FURTHER USE OF YOUR 
INFORMATION. IN ADDITION, SUBSETS OF CPA ARE AVAILABLE 
SEPERATELY IF YOU NEED ONLY' SOME OF THE FUNCTIONS DESCRIBED 
HERE.

PRODUCT ROUNDUP 



WINTER 'S3 



MHEN INFQ-64 WAS FIRST CONCEIVED. AND SUBSEQUENTLY CREATED, DUR PURPOSE MAS 
TO HELP COMMODORE 44 ENTHUSIASTS FIND DECENT SOFTWARE AND OTHER PRODUCTS FOR 
THEIR MACHINES IN A HDRLD DOMINATED BY OTHER PERSONAL COMPUTERS AND WHERE 64 
PRODUCTS SEEMED SCARCE OR NON-EXISTENT. WE HOPE THE PREMIERE ISSUE FULFILLED 
THAT AIM. AND BY YOUR RESPONSE TO OUR HUMBLE FIRST OFFERING, WE SURMISE THAT 
IT DID. 




IN THE 3 SHORT MONTHS SINCE INFO'S DEBUT. OUR MISSION 
CHANGED. THE PROBLEM, HAPPILY, FACING 64 USERS TODAY 
OVERWHELMING AVALANCHE OF NEW PRODUCTS FOR A PERSONAL 
BECOME THE UNDISPUTED LEADER IN THE UNDER- $1008 ARENA 1 



HAS SUBSTANTIALLY 

IS THE SUDDEN & 

COMPUTER THAT HAS 



IN THE FACE OF THIS 'ELECTRONIC CORNUCOPIA". WE NO LONGER FEEL IT SERVES OUR 
READERS BEST FOR INFO-64 TO COLLECT EVERY POSSIBLE PRODUCT WITHIN THESE PAGES 
JUST BECAUSE IT HAS "FOR THE 64" STAMPED ON IT. 

AND SO HE HAVE ADDED TO OUR EFFORTS THE GOAL (BEGUN IN THIS ISSUE, AND TO BE 
FURTHER DEVELOPED) OF SCREENING AS WELL AS COLLECTING PRODUCTS. WE THINK WE 
SHOULD BE ABLE TO HOLD THE ROUNDUP TO ABOUT 1000 OF THE BEST AND MOST 
INTERESTING PRODUCTS, ELIMINATING ONLY THOSE PRODUCTS WHICH REPRESENT OBVIOUS 
DUPLICATION (OUR FILES CONTAIN ABOUT 65 UNREMARKABLE MAILING LIST PROGRAMS 
WITH THE SAME BASIC DESCRIPTION AND PRICE - WE DON'T THINK YOU WOULD ENJOY 
READING THRU ALL THESE ANY MORE THAN WE DID- LET US KNOW IF WE'RE WRONG), 

SOMETIMES A GREAT PRODUCT GETS OVERLOOKED. IF THE COMPANY DOESN'T SEND US 
INFORMATION OR SAMPLES. AND IF THEY ARE GETTIN6 NO PUBLICITY ELSEWHERE, WE 
HAY COMPLETELY HISS WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. YOU CAN HELP OUT HERE BY WRITING US 
ABOUT ANY PRODUCTS NOT LISTED THAT YOU KNOW OF AND SEEM LIKE WORTHWHILE 
ADDITIONS. 



HON TO USE THE ROUNDUP 



PRODUCTS ARE ARRANGED BY CATEGORIES (SEE INDEX AT RIGHT). EACH PRODUCT TITLE 
IS ACCOMPANIED BY A 3-CHARACTER VENDOR CODE. A MEDIA ABREVIATION WHERE 
APPLICABLE (SEE LEGEND BELOW), PRICE, EXPECTED AVAILABILITY DATE, AND A 
RATING OF FROH ONE TO FIVE STARS <*>. IF WE DON'T HAVE ONE OF THESE 
INFORMATION ITEMS, THE LETTERS "NA" WILL APPEAR INSTEAD. IF YOU WANT MORE 
INFORMATION ABOUT A PARTICULAR PRODUCT, USE THE 3- CHARACTER VENDOR CODE TC 
LOCATE THE VENDOR IN THE VENDOR ROUNDUP (BEGINNING ON PAGE 59).

RATINGS GUIDE 



* NOT WORTH MENTIONING (SO WE USUALLY DON'T) 

** POOR: EITHER DOESN'T WORK RIGHT (SERIOUS BUGS), OR IS LACKING 

IN IMAGINATION, USEFULNESS, OR PERFORMANCE. 
*** JUST FINE: NO SERIOUS BUSS. PERFORMS REASONABLY HELL - BUT 

NOTHING SPECIAL (THIS IS SOMETIMES A PRDDUCT WHICH HAS BEEN DONE 

ENOUGH BY OTHERS, LIKE A PLAIN VANILLA MAILING-LABEL PROGRAM, OR 

SOME BLAST-' EM ARCADE GAMES) 
****.... VERY GOOD: PROFESSIONAL, SOLID. CREATIVE, STANDS APART, 
*****.. UNUSUALLY OUTSTANDING!: A LEADER IN ITS CATEGORY. 

(PLUS AND MINUS SIGNS INDICATE SLIGHTLY HIGHER AND LOWER JUDGEMENTS, 
RESPECTIVELY) 

WE DON'T RECOMMEND BUYIN6 ANYTHING RATED BELDW 3 STARS- THERE'S TOO MUCH 600D 
STUFF OUT THERE TO SETTLE FOR LESS. 

ONLY PRODUCTS ACTUALLY TESTED BY INFO-64 OR OUR CONTRIBUTORS ARE RATED - 
OTHER PRODUCTS SHOW "NA" (NOT AVAILABLE) IN PLACE OF STARS,

UNFORTUNATELY, THE PRODUCT WAS RUSHED IN ITS CONVERSION 
TO THE 64 AND, IN ITS PRESENT CONDITION, CAN NOT BE

TEXT ADVENTURE GOMES 



====» THE INFOCOM ADVENTURE SERIES ARE THE LEADING TEH- 
BASED ADVENTURE GAMES. THEY ALL INCORPORATE A VERY 
POWERFUL LANGUA6E INTERPRETER (PARSER) WHICH HAS A 
VOCABULARY OF ABOUT 600 WORDS. ALLOWING INPUT OF WHOLE AND 
MULTIPLE SENTENCES INCLUDING ADJECTIVES (IE: TAKE THE ROUGH 
OBJECT AND THE LONG DEVICE. PUT THE OBJECT AND THE DEVICE 
IN THE OPEN CONTAINER.). THIS IS VERY IMPRESSIVE TO 
EXPERIENCE AND GIVES AN UNCANNY SENSE OF INTELLIGENCE IN 
THE MACHINE. I INFOCOM EMPHASIZES THAT GRAPHICS HAVE BEEN 
DELIBERATELY OMMITTED TO ENHANCE THE USE OF THE 
IMAGINATION. WE FEEL IT IS MORE LIKELY DUE TO THE 
DIFFICULTY & EXPENSE OF WRITING GRAPHICS ROUTINES FOR THE 
HIDE NUMBER OF SYSTEMS WHICH THEIR GAMES WILL RUN ON NOW. 
WE FEEL THAT SIMPLE GRAPHIC ON-SCREEN MAPPING WOULD AD 
TREMENDOUSLY TO THESE OTHERWISE EXCELLENT GAMES AND NAIL A 
5-STAR RATING TO BOOT!)
